château d´Ussé Loire

Enter the magical world of Ussé,
Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

Once upon a time there was a fairy tale castle overlooking the rivers Indre and Loire…it was so marvellous that Charles Perrault took it as inspiration for his tale of Sleeping Beauty.

Whether you are young or old, step inside the castle and marvel as the fairy tale springs to life before your very eyes. Follow in the footsteps of Vauban, Perrault, Chateaubriand, Le Nôtre and the Blacas family who still live in this illustrious Loire Valley château today.
